From Sunday 20 December 2020 we're suspending our walks

Sadly we've had to stop our walks once again, following the latest government guidelines. We hope to restart them in 2021 as soon as we can.

Virtual Walks and Talks   

We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Temple Bar Trust.   You are invited to join us for series of live-broadcast, virtual walks around the City. The series includes the fascinating history of Temple Bar, Paternoster Square, St Pauls, the life, and work of Sir Christopher Wren and some of the wonderful but often overlooked statues and sculptures nearby.  Find out more and book here:  

Note: We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible.

If you want a walk or lecture for a group of people, then please use our Find a Guide section.
